not swerve from it. 

 

If the suggestion made near the outset of these remarks, in comparing 

the reproductive function in man and animals--viz., that the seasons 

of sexual approach should be governed by the inclination of the 

female--were conscientiously followed, it would undoubtedly do away 

with at least three-fourths of the excesses which have been under 

consideration. Before rejecting the hint so plainly offered by nature, 

let every man consider for a moment whether he has any other than purely 

selfish arguments to produce against it. 

 

Early Moderation.--The time of all others when moderation is most 

imperatively demanded, yet least likely to be practiced, is at the 

beginning of matrimonial life. Many a woman dates the beginning of a 

life of suffering from the first night after marriage; and the mental 

suffering from the disgusting and even horrible recollections of that 

night, the events of which were scarred upon her mind as well as upon 

her body, have made her equally as wretched mentally as bodily. 

 

A learned French writer, in referring to this subject, says, "The 

husband who begins with his wife by a rape is a lost man. He will never 

be loved." 

 

We quote the following very sensible words from Dr. Napheys:-- 

 

"It sometimes happens that marriage is consummated with difficulty. 

To overcome this, care, management, and forbearance should always be 

employed, and anything like precipitation and violence avoided." 

 

Cases have come under our care of young wives who have required months 

of careful treatment to repair the damage inflicted on their wedding 

night. A medical writer has reported a case in which he was called upon 

to testify in a suit for divorce, which is an illustration of so gross 

a degree of sensuality that the perpetrator certainly deserved most 

severe punishment. The victim, a beautiful and accomplished young lady, 

to please her parents, was married to a man much older than herself, 

riches being the chief attraction. She at once began to pine, and in 

a very few months was a complete wreck. Emaciated, spiritless, haggard, 

she was scarcely a shadow of her former self. The physician who was 

called in, upon making a local examination, found those delicate organs 

in a state of most terrible laceration and inflammation. The bladder, 

rectum, and other adjacent organs, were highly inflamed, and sensitive 

in the highest degree. Upon inquiring respecting the cause, he found 

that from the initial night she had been subjected to the most excessive 

demands by her husband, "day and night." The tortures she had undergone 

had been terrific; and her mind trembled upon the verge of insanity. 

She entered suit for divorce on the charge of cruelty, but was defeated, 

the judge ruling that the law has no jurisdiction in matters of that 

sort. 

 

In another somewhat similar case which came to our knowledge, a young 

wife was delivered from the lecherous assaults of her husband--for they 

were no better--by the common sense of her neighbor friends, who 

gathered in force and insisted upon their discontinuance. It is only
